with Rob Goodwin

Artist | Designer | Maker

 

Rob Goodwin is an extraordinary artist and a fantastic example of what it means to be born and bred with the belief that having London as your main source of creative inspiration and stylistic reference brings.

Rob began his career as a designer almost by accident, which is perhaps why his pieces are so easy to admire, yet so hard to pigeonhole. His visions are full of both fantasy and epic conspiracies that take you places without allowing you the time to acknowledge the inherent contradictions between his medieval and futuristic visions that create, in turn, unprecedented aesthetic discoveries.

Specialising in unique and inimitable leather pieces with elaborate artisanal detail, his creations are imbued with selfless dedication and a sophisticated attention to detail.

His creations have been worn by celebrities such as Madonna, Rihanna and Angelina Jolie, and have also been exhibited in art galleries, included in editorials of fashion and trend magazines, filmed in international commercials and starred in exquisite theatrical productions.

It is however, thanks to the histrionic nature of his pieces, that Rob has recently started an interesting career as an accessory designer for high-status film productions, and in this conversation Rob tells us in great detail how Hollywood came into his life, how he has survived moments of intense artistic doubt and what it’s like to gallop between Prague and London.

This conversation is an ode to the fragility that exists in the heart of every incorruptible creator. Listen to it in order to reconsider your own doubts and reconnect with the nobility of your own aspirations, ambitions and dreams. It will certainly be worth it.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Rob Goodwin è un artista straordinario oltre ad un fantastico esempio di cosa significhi nascere e crescere a Londra e prendere la città come principale fonte di ispirazione e riferimento di stile.

Rob ha iniziato la sua carriera di designer quasi per caso, ed è forse per quello che le sue opere sono altrettanto facili da ammirare quanto difficili da incasellare. La sua visione è intrisa di fantasia ed intrighi epici che ti trascinano all’improvviso in un mondo tra il medievale e il futurista. A loro volta si esprimono inedite rivelazioni estetiche.

Specializzato nella produzione artigianale di ineguagliabili ed impagabili lavori in pelle, le creazioni di Rob sono realizzate con dedizione e raffinata attenzione ai dettagli.

Celebrità come MadonnaRihanna e Angelina Jolie hanno indossato le sue creazioni, e queste sono state esposte in gallerie d’arte, inserite in servizi fotografici di riviste di moda e di tendenza, filmate in spot internazionali e protagoniste di pregevoli produzioni teatrali di decisamente importanti.

Proprio grazie alla natura istrionica dei suoi pezzi, Rob ha recentemente avviato un’interessante carriera come designer di accessori per produzioni cinematografiche di alto profilo, e in questa conversazione Rob ci racconta in dettaglio come Hollywood sia entrata nella sua vita, come sia sopravvissuto a momenti di intenso dubbio artistico e cosa significhi vivere facendo avanti e indietro tra Praga e Londra.

Questa conversazione è un’ode alla fragilità che esiste nel cuore di ogni creatore incorruttibile. Ascoltatelo per rielaborare i vostri dubbi e riconnettervi alla nobiltà delle vostre aspirazioni, ambizioni e sogni. Ne varrà sicuramente la pena.

Rob Goodwin es un artista extraordinario y un fantástico ejemplo de lo que significa nacer, crecer y creer en Londres como principal fuente de inspiración y como referencia estilística.

Rob inició su carrera como diseñador casi por accidente y quizás por ello sus piezas son fáciles de admirar y difíciles de encasillar. Sus visiones como diseñador están llenas de fantasía, y de conspiraciones épicas que te trajinan sin que tengas tiempo de reaccionar entre lo medieval y lo futurista, creando a su vez descubrimientos estéticos inéditos.

Especialista en la elaboración artesanal de inmejorables e inimitables piezas de cuero, sus creaciones son elaboradas con abnegada dedicación y con sofisticada atención al detalle.

Sus creaciones han sido lucidas por celebridades como Madonna, Rihanna y Angelina Jolie, y han sido exhibidas en galerías de arte, incluidas en editoriales fotográficos de revistas de moda y tendencias, filmadas en comerciales internacionales y han protagonizado exquisitas puestas teatrales de indudable relevancia.

Sin embargo, gracias a la naturaleza histrionica de sus piezas, Rob a iniciado recientemente una interesante carrera como diseñador de accesorios para producciones cinematográficas de gran estatus, y en esta conversación Rob nos cuenta con lujo de detalle cómo llegó Hollywood a su vida, como ha sobrevivido a momentos de intensa duda artística y como es vivir a galope entre Praga y Londres.

Esta conversación es una oda a la fragilidad que existe en el corazón de todo creador incorruptible. Escúchala para reconsiderar tus propias dudas y para re-conectar con la nobleza de tus propias aspiraciones, ambiciones y sueños. Sin duda valdrá la pena.
